Based on a find made by metal detectorist Sven-Erik, this gripping beast pendant, depicts a bear in Viking age Borre style. The original is skillfully rendered with carefully made facial details. The bear was seen as the Grand Father of the woods during the viking age. Not quite human, but human like enough to be understood as posessing human qualities. A way of understanding the bear which is still found among tribes of Siberia. As a spirit animal it imposes strength, courage and a deep rooted connection with the forest and its energies.
